Good Start...Bad Finish
(May 31, 2015) I parked my car for 4 days and had no issue with checking in or getting to the airport in more than enough time to catch my flight. Everyone I encountered was very pleasant and courteous. However, my return was the total opposite. The driver who picked me up was the WORST!! He yelled at me and told me to "stop talking" during our phone conversation. Apparently as a first time user of this service, I should have known the van would be different than what I was dropped off in which resulted in the driver missing me the first time around the airport. He totally lacked in patience and any form or customer service etiquette.

Park & Fly Parking
(May 6, 2015) When we arrived to leave to catch our plane the shuttle was there waiting for us. When we returned we waiting about 15 minutes or so and were drop off right by our car. I have used this parking before and will continue for I have had nothing but great experiences with them.

Good Job Ramada
(March 29, 2015) Overall a very good experience. You have to park in the back of the hotel and the lot is fenced in. The shuttles are at the front of the hotel, so you will have to walk to the front to get the shuttle to go to the airport. The drivers are friendly, but the seats of the shuttle are not very good. You pay when you drop-off your car and when you are coming back, the shuttle driver drops you off near your car, where you pick-up your car and just leave - simple as that.

long wait
(March 16, 2015) When I call to be picked up at the airport, I wait longer than what I like. I fly out of Philadelphia Airport about 10 times a year, I don't know if I'll continue to park at the Ramada or not. The only complaint I have is the long wait after returning to the airport.

parking for phl
(February 12, 2015) This parking has easy access from and to I76. Desk personnel are friendly. Shuttle leaves the hotel every half hour. Pickup wait time depends on how close you are to the half hour. If you just miss a shuttle, it can take 45 min for it to return. This time when we called for the pickup, the driver said 15 min and it was close to that

Great Service
(February 7, 2015) I would recommend to anyone needing to park for the airport. When we returned I called for the shuttle to pick us up and we waited approx. 3 minutes and he was pulling up. The driver was very courteous.

Excellent buy
(January 9, 2015) I left my car at the Ramda for two weeks. I had no problems. The folk I dealt with couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. My wait at the airport was a little longer than expected but I missed the shuttle by a couple of minutes. The driver was kind enough to call me when he got back to the airport so I didn't have to wait out in the cold.

Great price total $6
(November 14, 2013) Great price and great location the only bad is when you get in 7am when they change drivers so you will have to wait 30 min to an hour. I will use again and again. I don't care about waiting because I'm busy on my phone and internet

Good service with great rate
(August 3, 2012) I was a little leery when driving on Penrose away from the airport and seeing a somewhat run down hotel as my parking service. I waited about 20 minutes for the shuttle, but there was construction on Platt bridge. When I returned I called the driver and he was there within 10 minutes. He drove a little too fast, but I got back to my car and everything was fine. For $5 bucks a day it was better than expected.

Good Service for a Great Price
(July 15, 2012) All Personnel were courteous from the receptionist in the lobby to the drivers of the departure & arrival vans. When departing, it would be wise to get to the hotel early to ensure you have a seat on the next van leaving out. Even at 4:30AM, I was surprised that the van was already filled & had to wait for the next van which came at 5AM . It was the same van that left at 4:30AM but this was probably due to no traffic on the road at that time of morning. Don't know how quickly it would have returned during a rush hour, so allow yourself plenty of time just in case. Upon arrival back to PHL airport, the wait time from the time I called was about 20 minutes. Overall I was satisfied with the service and would definately use them again!

(July 14, 2012) got back from aruba midnight. It was the last flight .20 of us had cars at skyview .They had one van that held 7-8 people . could use a second van when they know all these people would be returning at the same time.

No problem at all
(June 9, 2012) I used this shuttle as both a pickup and drop-off from PHL. I had no issue with pickup at 4:45 AM, although the person at the front desk was a bit rude. Nevertheless, I reached the airport in plenty of time. Pickup was a little more disorganized, although there were a LOT of people being picked up at that time. I waited about 1/2 hour to be picked but, but I was made aware of that by the driver via phone. All in all, not a bad experience - it's what I expected for the cheap price I paid.

Long wait time
(April 18, 2012) While the parking was at a decent rate, our wait for pickup from the airport was over double what we were told it would be. We waited for about 40 minutes total. After we called the first time, the receptionist told us that we would be picked up in 15-20 mins. When that didn't happen, we called back, but the shuttle had not even left yet. Maybe this was an exception to their typical standards, but we won't be parking there again.

Convenient & economical ;-)
(September 11, 2011) We arrived at Skyview, produced our receipt, signed the book and within 15 minutes we were in the van to the airport! When we returned, which was after 1:00 am and in torrential downpours, the shuttle arrived within minutes of us getting our luggage.

Frequent visitor
(August 2, 2011) I needed to fly out of Philadelphia to Chicago and back for a two-day sprint, but needed to find a convenient and inexpensive place to park the car. This lot was easy to find (look for the tall building) and the service to and from the airport was available almost immediately. Also, the staff was very courteous. Previous reviewers were correct. This is a great solution.

(March 22, 2011) Clearly the best value for airport parking with exceptionally courteous staff. I was surprised with how quickly transportation to and from the hotel and airport arrived. I will use Skyview again! Thank you.

A+ for Skyview Plaza
(March 18, 2011) My experience parking at Skyview Plaza was as smooth as airport parking gets. The shuttle vans to and from the airport were quick and timely, and the drivers were friendly. The hotel is easily the tallest building in the area, so it is impossible to miss. Getting there is a little tricky, though, due to some strange intersections in the area so be sure to look up directions before you leave. Packer Avenue is probably your best bet. It would be nice if there were directions on the web page. The only potential concern is that this is an open hotel parking lot and is not fenced in or secured in any way. They claim that they have overnight security to watch the lot, but this could be a concern if you have a nicer car that you actually care about. I will probably park here again in the future if the price is right.
